We all take our car batteries for granted, we put the key in the ignition, turn it and expect an instant start.
But what happens when your car battery fails, when it refuses to turn your engine over, your car is stuck outside your home or workplace and you're going nowhere?
Cold days and nights, especially during the winter months, puts an additional strain on car batteries because the car engine needs more power to get them started. Then there is the fact that lights, heaters, windscreen heaters, seat warmers and windscreen wipers are all putting extra demands on the battery as well. A car battery usually only has a lifespan of around five years, but even relatively new ones can go wrong.
At Brightwell Garage, we stock a small range of car batteries that will fit most cars, but if you give us a call beforehand, we can source the correct one for you and have it ready for fitting when you arrive so you would not have to wait.
Our battery prices are more competitive than some of the leading high street motorist shops – with the added convenience of free fitting at our garage. We can supply and fit batteries to any passenger car or light commercial vehicle.
Having a Brightwell Garage technician carry out a Battery Diagnostic check, especially before a big trip, is a quick, easy way to long-lasting peace of mind. It takes just minutes to inspect and test your battery and charging system components on a machine that lets you know with a high degree of confidence how much life is left in it. If it’s fine, we’ll give you the good news. If it’s not, we’ll let you know that too and recommend the right replacement battery.
If our mechanics at Brightwell Garage determine that your vehicle battery isn’t performing within the manufacturer’s recommendations, we’ll replace it with a new one. And to help make sure you can have a worry-free journey, we’ll test the new battery and starting and charging system components prior to installation and retest the vehicle battery and starting and charging components after installation.
